My year on exchange in Edinburgh

Kimberly Humphries

I can honestly say that taking part in the University of Auckland student exchange programme was one of the best experiences of my life. I spent a year studying at the University of Edinburgh during which time, I made many lifelong friends, got to experience living in an amazing city, as well as enjoying a challenging but very interesting 3rd year academic programme taught by world-class lecturers.


U21 'A Challenge Like No Other'

Universitas 21 Global Ingenuity Challenge 2018

“It was exciting to see participants of Universitas 21 delivering creative solutions to real world problems across a range of different fields.”  – George Smith, Second Year Geography student, University of Nottingham (UK)

GIC is a challenge like no other.  Business experience or not (the latter in my case), the project throws you into an international competition which is completed a mere two weeks after it starts.  The only requirements are to engage to commit to ten hours of work and produce a three minute video presentation – easy!
